  • "Keeping up with the Joneses" isn't just a phrase that's thrown around casually, especially when updating your home with nifty home automation appliances and connections; you'll need the Joneses to keep up with you. However, upgrading your home's electronic connectivity and infrastructure to meet your home automation needs and wants requires expensive contractors, evaluators, construction crews, and other necessary services which can be done by yourself for a fraction of the cost. So rather than blindly picking up the phone and calling an "expert" who may not truly understand how you want to upgrade your home, step it up and dive into how your home's connectivity and infrastructure works, and get some hands on training with Bedrock Learning's BL-oc-FEST Electronic Systems Technicians (ESTs) Online Training Course.
